    I will stay from Dec 20-23 and I bought 3days ticket from Dec 21-23 We are three. I , my husband and five year old daughter. We are for the fisrt time. What theme park is best for my daughter? We will choose out or 4 theme parks.

    Thank you for your question, Hyekyong!  I think you have chosen the best time of year for your first trip to Walt Disney World!  The Magic of the holiday season just permeates the air, and it adds a whole level of excitement to a visit to the theme parks and the resorts.

    I think the best theme park for a five year old princess on her first visit is definitely the Magic Kingdom!  This is the theme park most people think of when they think of Walt Disney World, and you will find a great mix here of classic attractions, an incredible parade, and some terrific shows.  Don't miss things like Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger and It's a Small World.  Enjoy the classics like the Enchanted Tiki Room and Pirates of the Caribbean. 

    My four and eight year old daughters also love Disney's Hollywood Studios.  With favorites such as Beauty and the Beast and the Little Mermaid coming to life on stage in front of them, this park is a highlight of their trip.  Don't miss Toy Story Midway Mania - a fun, interactive attraction for all ages.

    If I had to choose one more park for the third day, I would say Disney's Animal Kingdom.  My girls not only enjoy the animals and the educational component, but they really enjoy things like It's Tough To Be a Bug and the Kilimanjaro Safari.  I think the best show anywhere on Walt Disney World property is here as well.  The Festival of the Lion King is a Broadway comparable stage show that is a spectacle all on its own.

    I hope your first vacation is filled with magic and happy moments!
